In My Mailbox (20) and (21)

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Kristi @ The Story Siren. Despite recent events and all the drama, I'm going to continue to support this meme.

Hi, everyone! I have two IMMs to give you today (sorry that they're so late, I was busy obsessing over Avatar: Legend of Korra on Tumblr) and I'm really pleased with my book hauls.


Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Thanks to Valerie @ Stuck in Books!)
Signed SLIDE postcard (not pictured, thanks to Jill Hathaway!)


When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad

Until I Die (Revenants #2) by Amy Plum

So like I said, I'm really pleased with what I got over the past two weeks and I can't wait to read them all. I'm especially excited about Until I Die because Die For Me was one of my favourite 2011 reads, and I may have done some jumping up and down when Half-Blood arrived...

Feature and Follow #8

Feature and Follow is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a way for bloggers to gain new followers and friends.

This week's question:

Q: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up" with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her. 

For me, the only character that comes to mind is James from The Goddess Test series. At the beginning, he seemed like such a nice, cute character but it was later revealed that his intentions were perhaps less than honourable, and I was a little disappointed. However, it remains to be seen whether this will turn around, so I'm keeping an open mind.

Review: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Queen (Iron Fey #3) by Julie Kagawa
Published by Mira Ink 2011

My name is Meghan Chase.

I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.                                                           

This time, there will be no turning back. 

The end of The Iron Daughter saw Ash and Meghan exiled to the mortal realm, with nowhere to go but home to Meghan's family. Soon, Meghan realises that her struggles are far from over. She will have to return to Faery to face the new Iron King and stop the war between the Summer, Winter and Iron fey, and stop the Iron Kingdom from destroying the Nevernever for good. This will be the greatest battle Meghan will ever have to face.

The Iron Queen is the last book from Meghan's point of view. I enjoyed the previous two books, but this one just blew those completely out of the water and I thought it was great. 

Meghan and Ash are now in the mortal realm after being exiled, but they have to return to Faery to the stop the war once and for all. Meghan has grown so much as a character throughout the series, and in this book I really felt like she'd managed to reach her full potential. She was strong and wise, and fearless. She was willing to die for what she believed in and for the Nevernever. In previous books, I'd felt that she was a bit too reckless, but there wasn't really any evidence of that here. The banishment to the mortal realm also changed Ash. He let his guard down since he no longer belonged to the Unseelie Court. We get to see him for who he truly his beneath his icy persona, and I found myself really warming up to him. 

There are more risks than ever before, and the characters know it. Nevertheless, Meghan, Ash and Puck (because where would anyone be without him? Of course he shows up) dive into the mission with fiery determination. This book is rife with action and I loved every moment of it. Mingle that with a romance that knew no bounds - all-consuming and passionate - and we have ourselves a winner! The Iron Queen also had a whole host of new characters that I loved, and I definitely didn't expect the new Iron King to be who he was revealed to be. The way the ending played out was even less expected; it was simply tragic, and I can't wait to see where The Iron Knight goes.

I'm Back!

Hi everyone, I'm back again after a rather stressful week of exams. Some I thought went really well, others not so much, but I can only hope that I did well enough. I literally just posted my review of Out of Sight, Out of Time, so be sure to give that a look! It's good that things are going back to normal (for now) and that the stress has been lifted from my shoulders. Results might be coming out in a week or two, but I can already tell you my French mark: I got an A* and I couldn't be more proud of myself. However, I do also have a French listening test and an English speaking and listening assessment (that counts for 20% of my final grade) tomorrow still, so fingers crossed :)

It's good to be back!

Review: Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

Out of Sight, Out of Time (Gallagher Girls #5) by Ally Carter
Published by Orchard 2012

With more than a million Gallagher Girls books sold, a legion of fans have fallen in love with the New York Times best-selling spy-girl series, and the fifth book delivers the most nerve-wracking, high-stakes adventure yet.
The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, her memory is a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and dirt under her nails. All she wants is to go home. But even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers as Cammie and her friends face their most difficult challenge yet. With only their training and a few clues to guide them, the girls go in search of answers on the other side of the world. But the Circle is hot on their trail and will stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.

*May contain spoilers from previous books*

I've been looking forward to reading this for a while now, and I read it as soon as I possibly could after purchasing it. This book was everything I'd hoped it would be and more, and I loved it.

At the end of Only the Good Spy Young, Cammie ran away to find out the truth of why The Circle wants her. Now, summer is long over and Cammie wakes up battered and bruised in a retreat on top of a mountain. She has no memories of what happened during those summer months. From there, Cammie embarks on the greatest adventure of all: trying to remember what she did last summer. This brings many more questions into the mix; with the help of her friends, Cammie retraces her steps on the other side of the world, and devastating secrets are revealed.

This book had a much darker feel to it, especially as Cammie wakes up in such a mysterious place under mysterious circumstances. Once she calls home and returns to school, she finds that everything has changed. Within the first hundred or so pages of reading this book, I seriously wanted to cry for Cammie because so much had changed while she'd been gone and she was pretty much an outsider; everyone was tiptoeing around her. But Cammie is strong, and the one thing that keeps her going throughout the book is her need to find out just exactly what she did last summer. 

The clues that "Summer Cammie" left behind fitted and flowed perfectly, and it was interesting to keep up with. The journey that the whole gang ventured on revealed some shocking secrets, and I honestly didn't see them coming. The way the whole thing was laid out was very clever. Cammie had to take a journey concerning her mind as well as a journey for the clues she left, and this also had a rather dark feel. The romance also returns. I found it rather soft and subtle; this isn't a bad thing because it didn't overshadow the story considering how important what Cammie is going through in this book is, and the subtlety added to the sweet and tender nature of Zach and Cammie's relationship. I also like how their relationship isn't outright defined, and Cammie herself is still unsure what to make of it. I feel as if it still has a "will they/won't they" nature, and I look forward to seeing it progress further. The ending was a massive shocker, and I really, really can't wait to see how this goes. I wanted the next book right after finishing the last page, and now the wait begins again!

Feature and Follow #7

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a way for bloggers to gain new followers and friends.

This week's question:

Q: What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?

I pretty much always fear that the film won't live up to the book, and I always feel a little bit nervous. Nevertheless, I also like it when a book I like is being made into a film, and I look forward to it. I have a few books that I would nervous to see the film adaptation of, such as:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare

They're all books that are among my favourites, and I would hate to be disappointed by the film adaptations. All of these books have sold their film rights, and I'll look forward to seeing them in the cinema in the future, despite my nervousness.

Review: A Million Suns by Beth Revis

A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis
Published by RazorBill 2012

Trapped on board the spaceship Godspeed, Amy trusts no-one.

The ship's ruler is dead and a rebellion threatens. Amy wants to help Elder as he tries to take charge, but she's torn between her feelings for him and the chaos that's pulling everything apart. As more harrowing discoveries are made about Godspeed, Amy is caught in a desperate race to unravel its secrets. Only one thing is certain.

They have to get off this ship.

The heart-stopping sequel to Across the Universe: a story of love, murder and madness - set in space.

*This review may contain spoilers from Across the Universe*

I read Across the Universe quite a while ago, and luckily I still remember what happened in it. It was a brilliant debut from Beth Revis and I jumped at the chance to buy A Million Suns from The Book Depository. I had very high expectations of this book because Across the Universe was so great, and I'm sure when I say that this book is even better than the first!

Three months have passed since Orion's killings and eventual capture. He's frozen in a cryo chamber now, but things are far from normal. Eldest is dead, and the ship's citizens are no longer under the influence of Phydus, the drug that made them blindly obey orders. Elder takes charge, but now that the people can make their own choices, a rebellion is on the horizon and everything is falling apart. 

This was simply brilliant. There was never really a dull moment. Elder has taken charge now that Eldest is dead, and everything is thrown out of whack. Trouble is, now that everyone is making their own individual choices, Elder's struggling to keep control and I liked seeing how the rebellion continually escalated throughout. Another main plot point in this book was that Amy discovers that Orion left clues for her to find, and he says that she is the only one who can make the choice. This causes Amy to find and follow the clues he left behind, find out his big secret and see what choice she has to make. This was really, really great because it flowed nicely, one clue leading to another. More and more big revelations were made, and I was shocked at times. I didn't expect any of it. 

If anything, the ship is more dangerous than when Orion was walking about. There's a new villain this time around, killing innocent people and further fuelling the fire that is the rebellion. The struggle Elder faces while trying to control the ship and Amy's quest for Orion's clues eventually collide, and boy is it explosive. I didn't expect the person who was the villain to be the villain at all, and it caught me off-guard. One of the final revelations in the book and the ending have me already seriously impatient and I completely want to read what happens next! I can't believe I have to wait another year to read the third and final book.

Review: Two-Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt

Two-Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt
Published by Simon Pulse 2007

There are two sides to every breakup.

This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation.
Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.
It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care.
But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot.
Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. And it has everything to do with why they broke up, why they can't get back together, and how, in spite of it all, this couple is destined for each other.

Road trip? Yes, please! This was a fantastic read and it's definitely one of my new favourites. 

Jordan and Courtney were completely in love, and they had a great relationship. They're even going to the same college, and they're driving cross-country in Jordan's car together for orientation. Then, Jordan dumps Courtney for a girl he met on the internet. The break-up has taken a toll on Courtney, but the trip is still on. However, there's more to the break-up than Courtney thinks, and Jordan is keeping things from her.

The story is told within two time zones, Before and After, and it is told from the points of view of both Jordan and Courtney. I really liked this because you get to see the break-up from both sides, and you also get to see how Jordan and Courtney met, and how their relationship progressed until it catches up with the present.

Courtney was a believable character. She reacted to the break-up as practically any girl would, albeit she has some other odd ways of making herself feel better about it. I liked her because she was a nice girl, and a bit crazy. Jordan was ultimately a player. He liked going to parties and sleeping with girls. However, he was generally very sweet during his relationship with Courtney, and how much he cares for her shows in both the Before and After chapters. Then there's BJ, Jordan's best friend. He was ridiculously crazy and Jordan looked out for him to make sure things didn't get too out of hand, and I really liked their friendship. All the characters were fantastic, and there were many funny moments. 

The plot twist was great. I didn't expect what Jordan was actually keeping secret from Courtney, and I ended up really sympathising with him. I understood why he felt that he needed to keep the secret. Naturally, the secret comes out and this is the basis towards the end of the story. In the end, the ending was really well done. Overall, this was a great heartfelt story that I really liked.

P.S. Sorry about the spacing, I keep trying to fix it but it's going nowhere!

Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a way for bloggers to gain new followers and friends.

This week's question:

Q: Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

This has only ever happened once, and I bought it because there were so many bad reviews that I wanted to see why everyone didn't like it. This happened with Tris & Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison. I tried reading it, but I couldn't even make it halfway through, and it was as bad as everyone said it was. Most of the time though, bad reviews usually make me not want to read the book. I do try to keep an open mind though, and give everything a shot.

Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey #2) by Julie Kagawa
Published by Mira Ink 2011

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.
Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

The Iron Daughter was much better than The Iron King, although I still didn't feel fully connected. This is often the case with fantasy novels with me, but it was a great read nonetheless.

Meghan has now been imprisoned in the Winter realm for a while, after upholding her end of the bargain she made with Ash and coming back to the Winter Palace with him. However, the moment she was handed over to Queen Mab, Ash abandoned her and she hasn't seen him since. War is on the horizon between the realms of Summer and Winter, after the Sceptre of the Seasons is stolen. Only Meghan knows the true culprit: the Iron fey. However, no one but her and Ash have actually seen them before, and with no Ash to back her up, no one believes her. She also discovers that she can no longer use her powers for help, so what will she do?

Meghan is now trapped in the Winter Court without her powers for help and Ash has disappeared. Meghan is pretty much the same person, except now she's hiding out in her room and thinking and crying about Ash. I didn't really like her in the beginning. Ash does eventually appear, and quite frankly, he acted like an ass. I know he had his reasons and the love he has for Meghan does show through, but his icy persona switches on and off throughout the book.

When the Sceptre of the Seasons is stolen, Meghan puts herself on a mission to find and return it in order to restore balance. This adventure was much better than that in The Iron King, and I enjoyed it a lot more. There is a twist involving the return of one character who previously appeared in The Iron King and I liked how that turned out. The thing that I liked most about this book though was some of the new characters that were introduced. They were simply magical and I loved them all.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book much better than the first. It has a great new adventure with both the return of old characters and the arrival of new ones. I'll get round to The Iron Queen soon!

Review: Immortal City by Scott Speer

Immortal City by Scott Speer
Published by Scholastic 2012
Source: Won ARC

Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect - everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love.

Maddy is swiftly caught up in Jackson's scene, a world of glamour, paparazzi - and murder. A serial killer is on the loose, leaving dead Angels' wings for the police to find on the Walk of Fame. Even the Guardians are powerless to protect themselves in the face of this threat … and this time it's up to Maddy to save Jackson.

When I first read the synopsis for this, I was skeptical but still interested. I wasn't sure how the concept of celebrity angels would work, and to be honest it sounded like a bit of a cliche. I was pleasantly surprised, and it was actually a very good story.

In the world of Immortal City, angels have revealed themselves to the mortal world and have started saving lives for money. Beautiful and powerful, they are the ultimate celebrities living in the City of Angels, L.A. Jackson Godspeed is the most eligible young angel in the city, and he's on his way to achieving the Guardian Angel title. Under unusual circumstances, he meets Maddy. Maddy doesn't follow the countless gossip blogs and news channels dedicated to the lives of the angels. From the moment they meet, Maddy is swept up into Jackson's world, but there's more at stake from them being together than either could have ever imagined. 

Immortal City was reminiscent of Lauren Conrad's L.A. Candy series for me, except that it had an angel twist. However, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Immortal City may come from a similar background, but the story is so much better. It also possesses the same slightly addictive quality that L.A. Candy had.

Maddy was a very down-to-earth character. She made the most of what she had in life, and she was happy. Maddy didn't care for the angels and what they did like everyone else, and I liked her for that. However, she was also a very stubborn character. Again though, that's not always a bad thing. She had good reasons for reacting to situations like she did, and she held her ground. I liked Jackson from the beginning. He wasn't like the usual celebrities, and he felt like he didn't belong, which is something he and Maddy had in common. He was very sweet, especially in his relationship with Maddy. He was a fun and calm character, except when he got angry, of course. 

I wasn't very keen on the sub-plot of the angel serial killer, though. It was only mildly interesting, and didn't really hold my attention. Even when bad things happened and people turned up dead, I felt slightly detached from it. I ended up skimming the sub-plot chapters. When I find out who the serial killer was, I was shocked, and it was a great twist but overall, I wasn't really impressed by the sub-plot. 

On the other hand, this does have its fair share of action and suspense along with plenty of romance and overall, I did actually quite like this book. There is room for a sequel, and I guess I wouldn't mind reading it, although I wouldn't be drooling over it if Scott Speer did decide to write one. This was an enjoyable read though, and it was worth reading.
